Jewett (Louisiana State U.) draws on her experiences teaching multicultural education to teacher-education students and learning to zydeco dance as she explores semblances of intimacy across self and other. In turn this is used to consider the implications of such semblances in terms of thinking about curriculum and research. The author encourages readers to envision curriculum as an embodied local where the play of epistemological forces replaces technocratic force, and where students experience the relative weight of desire, fear, and knowledge, the reciprocal touch of self and other, and the mysterious momentum of the semblance of intimacy.
